The City of Ipswich Drives Citywide Transformation with BriefCam Video Analytics
BriefCam’s Video Content Analytics Platform empowers Ipswich City Council and local law enforcement to enhance safety and maximize productivity
BOSTON, February 6, 2019 — BriefCam®, the industry’s leading provider of VIDEO SYNOPSIS® and Deep Learning solutions, today announced that the City of Ipswich has been leveraging BriefCam’s innovative and comprehensive video analytics platform to advance its Safe City initiatives.
To drive economic prosperity, enhance quality of life and facilitate connectivity in Ipswich, the city council is embracing new technologies and approaches, such as video surveillance, to increase public safety and support law enforcement. By implementing BriefCam’s Video Content Analytics platform, the city has achieved optimized productivity, reduced time-to-target in investigations and increased data-driven intelligence, maximizing their video resources for the benefit of the city council, residents and business owners.
“BriefCam’s intuitive technology allows us to do fast reviews and provide intelligence to police, so they can further their investigations and operations,” said Larry Waite, Ipswich Safe City and Corporate Security Manager. “What would normally take an hour and a half to two hours to review, now takes five to six minutes. Long term, the more we use it, the more efficient our time is going to be.” By aggregating video data over time, BriefCam helps users uncover trends and patterns for driving operational efficiency, visualizing the information in easy to consume data analytics dashboards.
BriefCam’s state-of-the-art technology accelerates video review and incident response by transforming video data into searchable, quantifiable and actionable intelligence. The technology analyzes video to detect, track, extract and identify people and objects that appear, driving security enablement and operational decision making. The ability to watch hours of video in minutes – sometimes even seconds – enables public safety and law enforcement operators to reinforce investigations with video evidence, understand developing situations in real-time, pinpoint objects and people of interest in video and unlock the full value of video surveillance investments.
“The City of Ipswich embodies the values at the heart of every forward-thinking city, and BriefCam is thrilled to be a part of their success,” said Stephanie Weagle, BriefCam chief marketing officer. “By empowering the City of Ipswich to accelerate investigations, improve situational awareness and derive operational intelligence, BriefCam is enabling the city to extend the value of their video surveillance investments and advance their Safe City initiatives. We are excited to see how the city continues to thrive and evolve as it harnesses further video data for actionable insight.”
